Abby Div - 2019.

I’m honestly not sure how Abby found me. But I do know we have been trying to work together for at least a year now by my count. After several instances of being in the same place at the same time I’m happy that we finally made plans to work together.

Abby and I captured so many great images in our short time together, far too many to share all of them in this post. Maybe a little down the line after these have time to marinate a little bit more I’ll share a few more.

Until then, give these a look:

If you can’t get enough of Abby, or want to book her yourself, make sure you visit her website. And of course because I’m not ashamed to share projects I am fond of, you can also see Abby (and so many others) in Nikola Tamindzic’s book Fucking New York.

Andie - 2019

A lot of the same things that were said about my previous post can be echoed here. I met Andie last year while being introduced to Julie, and we were supposed to shoot then.

I’m super happy that we were able to meet up this year, and I’m glad we had some extra time to talk day jobs and other interesting activities. I don’t want to share too much info to you internet strangers, but let’s just say this, this lady is doing some fantastic work and has really found her calling.

I’ve been trying to get this up for over a week now, but have just been crazy busy. So without any further ado, ANDIE!

Julie - 2019.

I first was introduced to Julie a year ago. A friend of mine let me know that she had some friends coming into town for the Days of the Dead horror convention that wanted some new photos taken. After some brief Facebook conversations back and forth we decided to shoot some basic headshots during the convention.

However, it just wasn’t meant to be. A wave of food poisoning hit at the least opportune time, so we decided to push things back. When the convention came to town this year we decided that we would revisit the offer.

We only had about 30 minutes of working time before it was time for the VIP party, but I am still very happy with how things turned out.

This was also the first time I used the portable V-Flat system from V-Flat World. I have to say I am very happy with how portable the whole system is, and can’t wait to learn how to use it better.

Taylor - 2018.

A few years around this time Taylor showed up to a Halloween party with a face full of makeup that he had been wearing all day (and would continue to wear all through the night) courtesy of his partner Courtney (with whom I have worked with in the past and consider a member of my current and future “team”).

I was impressed then, but was reminded of it this year when it came time to shoot my yearly Halloween series of images.

Courtney worked her magic, and within a few minutes I knew I had something I loved. I’m happy to share with you the results of our evening spent together.

But before we get there, first this. A few months ago Rick Genest AKA “Zombie Boy” tragically died in what is being investigated as a freak accident a few days after his 32nd birthday. While I didn’t know him personally, Rick had a look that few could top. And even if you don’t think you knew of him, there is a good chance that you have seen his photo. I dedicate this year’s series to him and the beautiful legacy he left behind.

Happy Halloween everyone.
